It Goes Down in the DMTriggered AF Podcast

It Goes Down in the DM

We’ve all been there: single, scrolling through social media, pausing on someone attractive, and hesitating to reach out to avoid looking thirsty. Or creating profiles on dating apps to only delete them a week later. With so many misconceptions around online dating, your Triggered AF hosts welcome entrepreneur, inventor, light-worker, and overall powerhouse, Dawn Dickson-Akpoghene, to discuss finding love online and what it looks like to be a powerful woman in a relationship.

Don’t miss this empowering conversation on the do's and don'ts of online dating, converting an online connection offline, and why it’s okay to step into the version of yourself that attracts the things you want on your own terms.


  • Do you follow the G-code?
  • It’s not about balance, it’s about prioritization
  • How do you define being a wife?
  • Ask the questions!
  • Dawn Dickson’s tips for dating intentionally
  • Removing the stigma around online dating


​​”It's no longer that you can date who's in your town, social media and dating apps has widened your pool. So there's nothing wrong with doing that. But there is a way to do it intentionally and get what you're looking for.”

“Lead with yourself. Lead with who you are at all times.”

I loved Dani views of this topic because I grew up in church also , but as an adult I figured out for myself that we truly should have a relationship with God and I listen to Mike Todd a preacher from Tulsa and he also states same thing. Belief and relationship with God doesn’t require rituals or any of that. I don’t let anything that I’ve seen in the church sway me from my belief in God. I believe in God not man or a religion. God does want us to fellowship with others but God is everywhere! I turn on my worship music all the time at home, in the car etc. it doesn’t require us to be in church because we can have church anywhere

I absolutely love this show. The topics are very thought provoking and inspiring. After each episode I walked away with a deep question to self-examine and make an effort to do the work. Keep shining ladies. I am so proud 😌👑❤️

Even from a man’s viewpoint, this show was indeed very insightful and thought provoking.
